How do i restore emails of one exchange mailbox to other mailbox on the same server using veritas 9.1.
I have a veritas backup tape from which i need to restore emails of one user to some other user's inbox on the same server. When i redirect the emails in veritas, it gives authentication failure/access denied error.

    There are a number of options.
    Which version of Exchange is this?

    This is exchange server 2003.
    I already have a old backup tape, from which i need to restore some emails of one user to other user's mailbox.
    Both these users are still on the exchange server. I created a new mailbox called test and tried to restore the emails of one user from the backup tape on to the test.(using redirect in Veritas). But veritas does 99% job and then says authentication failed. How can i acheive this. OR

    Is there a way by which i can restore the complete mailbox as a PST file using veritas.

    Ah ha.

    Exchange 2003 makes life so much easier.
    Use the Recovery Storage group, then EXMERGE the data out.
